HTML Emphasis <em> Element

By Christopher Kielty, Published Jan 19, 2019

Use <em> around text to impart emphasis. This is typically rendered as italics, which is kind of similar to <i>. However, <em> actually means this text is emphasized, rather than just this text is italic. Use CSS to make text italic for reasons other than emphasis. And actually, I use em{font-style:italic} in my style sheet just to be clear that I want my emphasized text to be in italics.
